Sayville, West Sayville, and Bayport, have earned an opportunity to begin to repair it's coastline. We have now what is called an LWRP -- a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program -- so that we can together, as citizens of these towns, begin to fix our streams, ponds, marshes and bays. It is imperative that we work closely with them, actively offering our best advice as to how we should fix our local environments. Where can in these three villages in Islip we find ways to improve the overall environmental health of our waters? It is Save The Great South Bay's great hope that our engagement with this LWRP can evolve into a roadmap for healing our bay. What we end up doing in Sayville, West Sayville, and Bayport, will be repeated elsewhere.
So even if you can't make this first meeting of three, at least take the LWRP's public survey gauging people's priorities as we seek to revitalize our coasts. Is supporting shore line restaurants more important to you than flooding? How important is habitat restoration to you, or water quality? The important thing is that we as a community engage with the LWRP so that we can together plan a better future for our community. Our LWRP will be our advocate in Albany, for the plans they deem have the greatest merit. So let's tell them. Here is their survey, whether or not you can come Tuesday night between 7-9 to 88 Greene Avenue, Sayville, to the public library, to deliver your suggestions in person.
